Clone mode dual-display:Certain resolutions crash MA3

Have two monitors: a 19" LCD with native resolution of 1280x1024 and a 32" LCD TV with a native resolution of 1360x768. I have an ATI Radeon 9200 AGP with latest available drivers (dated 05/03/2006) running both displays in clone mode with a resolution of 1360x768. There are two options for displaying the higher resolution on the 19" LCD: 1) Scale image to full panel size (which makes everything tall and squished) or 2) Use centered timings (which puts part of the screen off the display and moving the mouse towards an edge scrolls the screen to reveal more).

When I run MA3-9M in either of these modes and a resolution of 1360x768 (too wide for the 19" LCD), it crashes (error dialog box attached). At the same time that the error box appears, the resolution is switched from 1360x768 to 1280x768. I don't know if MA3 is asking for the resolution to be switched or if video drivers are switching it automatically.

Likewise, when I run MA3-9M with a resolution of 1280x1024 (too tall for the TV) MA3 crashes, displays the same error box, and simultaneously switches to 1280x768 again.

When I run MA3 with the resolution set to 1280x768, MA3 runs just fine.

Any thoughts?
